The Virgin of Kazan with Saints


Description Provenance Credit
Description This tiny triptych in cast bronze was probably mounted on a wall as a devotional image. In the central panel is an image of the so-called "Virgin of Kazan" (an icon of the Virgin miraculously discovered in the city of Kazan in 1579). On the left-hand panel are Saints Peter, Michael the Archangel, George, Basil of Caesarea, and Peter Metropolitan of Moscow, and John Chrysostom. On the right-hand panel are Gabriel the Archangel, Paul the Apostle, Gregory of Nazianzus, Demetrius, an unidentified bishop, and Alexis, Metropolitan of Moscow. In the small panel above the Virgin is an image of the Holy Face.
